Our family is still recovering from being sick with that darn flu. We have that nagging cough that just will not go away. Anyhow, I wanted to play in the FS Challenge tonight, but it had to be a fairly easy card to case. I have no energy whatsoever! Hoping that all changes next week when my mom comes to visit. Thanks for all your prayers for my family...it really means alot!
I picked up this stamp at the Dollar Tree awhile ago just because I had to have it. I love flip flops! But I am not suppose to wear them..no support for my ankles. I adhered DP and distress the edges to the base of the card. I stamped the flip flops onto watercolor paper with Black Stazon. I matted it onto orange and teal c/s. I colored with my blender pen using coordinating inks. I used my 2-way glue and glitter to add sparkle to the straps on the shoes. I had to use my Sizzix window frame twice to get the cut right for my saying so it would match up. I found a Michaels $1 clear stamp that fit perfect in it. I added some glitter for the tiny flower too. I also added 2 brads. I had some misc ribbon that I just kept from awhile ago and thought it went perfect with this card. What do you think? I know summer is over, but I am still wearing flip flops! How about you? Thanks for the early post and thanks for dropping by!
Things I changed:
1. different image
2. added sentiment
3. added ribbon

Sorry you're not feeling well. I'm honored that you would still make a FS card under the circumstances. My daughter would love your card. She's a big fan of flip-flops! Such a fun card. Thanks for playing.
